92Y Video: From the Poetry Center Archive: Jennifer Egan and Jeffrey Eugenides
“I feel like I’ve made it to Carnegie Hall.” So said Jennifer Egan from our stage on Monday night, her first time reading at the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center. She read the first chapter of A Visit from the Goon Squad, which won this year’s Pulitzer Prize. Joining her was another Pulitzer winner, Jeffrey Eugenides, who read from The Marriage Plot. Today’s video features excerpts from both of their readings, as well as a few moments from the Q-and-A that followed.
In an ongoing effort to share with our readers some of the great literary moments which the Unterberg Poetry Center has presented across the decades, this blog has begun to feature regular postings of archival recordings. For access to other recordings, please click here.
Unterberg Poetry Center webcasts and access to our archive are made possible in part by the generous support of the Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
